Bacon

You’d better believe that our bacon consistently sells out! ButcherBox bacon is sourced from slow-growing, minimally processed pigs. Uncured, nitrate-free, and sugar-free, this cut is hugely popular with members, be it for breakfast or with a salad or burger for dinner.

For a family meal that sizzles, wrap some strips of bacon around our chicken tenders, smother in spices, bake and enjoy.
